The Cold War: A Very Short Introduction

Серия: "Very Short Introductions"

The massive disorder and economic ruin following the Second World War made some form of Cold War inevitable, but did not predetermine its scope, intensity, or duration. This clear and stimulating Very Short Introduction examines the impact the Cold War had on the United States, the Soviet Union, Europe, and the Third World. It looks at the human and financial costs, and at how it affected the broader history of the second half of the twentieth century. Формат: 11 см х 17, 5 см.
